Why should I file a claim?
Filing a claim can help you obtain compensation for your injuries from the at-fault individual or party's insurer. You could receive damages for your medical care, property damage, income loss, physical therapy, as well as your pain and suffering. In addition, filing a claim to hold a negligent individual responsible for their actions will most likely cause them to be more cautious in the future. In other words, by taking legal action, you could help make your community a safer place.

The insurance company has made me an offer. Should I accept it?
Insurance companies are notorious for lowballing injured individuals out of fair compensation. They often make initial offers and mislead individuals into believing that this is the best offer they are going to get. That is not the case. Remember: Insurance companies are in the business of making money. They do not have your best interests at heart. Before accepting any offer, discuss your case with our firm.

I simply can't afford to hire a lawyer to represent me. What can I do?
We understand that many injured individuals hesitate to retain legal representation due to financial reasons. This is why our firm accepts personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. Contingency fees mean that our firm does not charge upfront legal fees. Our legal fees come from the final settlement offer we obtain on behalf of our clients. Our clients don't pay us a dime unless we win their case!
